The New America Schools Network (NAS) is a system of public charter high schools dedicated to serving a unique population – recent immigrants, their families and children who want to learn or perfect English and earn a high school diploma.
The mission of The New America Schools is to empower new immigrants, English language learners, and academically underserved students with the educational tools and support they need to maximize their potential, succeed and live the American dream.
Our schools are fully accredited, publicly funded institutions that serve young adults, ages 14-21 (in New Mexico: 14 and above). Our highly qualified staff provides intensive English language instruction and a rigorous academic curriculum to help students fulfill their dream of a better future.
The New America Schools believe educational opportunity is a cornerstone of American life and that English language skills are an essential component. NAS was created to serve English language learners and underserved students who might lack the English skills to succeed in mainstream high schools.
New America schools are located in diverse communities where the need is greatest. We have three campuses in the metro Denver area, campuses in Albuquerque, New Mexico and Las Cruces, New Mexico, and have a charter application under review to open a school in Phoenix, Arizona. In 2012 we received approval from The Nevada State Public Charter School Authority to open a school in Las Vegas (which will need to be renewed prior to opening a school).
